Don't restrict yourself to classic common start configurations! With the xHPTDC8-PCIe you can easily set up custom trigger scenarios. The device provides an infinite stream of timestamps - one for each input pulse. You may filter the stream in your own DAQ-software - or make use of the trigger and grouping features provided by xHPTDC8-PCIe.
Like the xTDC4-PCIe, the xHPTDC8-PCIe provides very high precision measurements with almost no cycle-to-cycle jitter. You can expect an RMS error very close to the quantization error. Its linearity is also practically perfect!
The inputs accept a wide range of single-ended signaling standards including NIM, TTL, and CMOS.
The PCIe bus master accesses directly a ring buffer in your PC memory, ensuring low CPU load at high data throughput.
Our TiGer timing generator allows you to create digital output pulse patterns on all connectors to control the timing of your experiment.
The newly added 18 bit ADC can monitor an analog voltage in your system in sync with the data acquisition or controlled by an external trigger.
The position-readout of MCPs via a delay-line detector (DLD) is today’s best choice in the case of single-particle detection. Delay line detectors have excellent signal-to-noise properties, depict superior imaging dynamics, and, in addition, have a high time resolution. Modern delay-line detectors are furthermore multiple-hit-capable. Our TDCs are perfect companions for the readout of these detectors.
In many TOFMS units, cronologic TDCs are used to measure precisely the arrival of single ions. From the arrival time, the ion’s time-of-flight is deduced, from which the mass-to-charge ratio of the detected particle can be determined. A crucial factor for a successful measurement is the extremely low cycle-to-cycle jitter of our TDCs and their very low multiple hit detection dead time.
While many aspects of nuclear physics are considered well understood after almost 100 years of research, several challenging questions are still open and under investigation. Our TDCs are used in gas detectors for nuclear physics experiments helping to understand the microcosm of the nucleus.
Neutron detectors are not only used in the area of radiation safety, e.g. in reactor instrumentation or special nuclear material (SNM) detection. They are as well employed in fusion plasma physics, particle physics, materials science, and even cosmic ray detection.
The currently most advanced spectral imaging is based on photon-counting detectors. Such detectors typically require precise timing measurements and corresponding applications strongly benefit from fast data acquisition electronics. Already during the development of our products we focus on exactly these properties.
